The campaign to pass a state lottery has announced that it raised more than $185,000 in October. Here's the financial report.

Major contributions include $75,000 from John and Patricia Bailey, who underwrote most of the petition drive to put the amendment on the ballot; $50,000 from John Bailey's father, Ted Bailey; $10,000 from John Tyson, the Tyson Foods chairman; $25,000 from J.B. Pritzker, described as an "education philanthropist"; $20,000 from scrap metals dealer Harold Tenenbaum; $1,000 from Jennings Osborne, who needs no introduction, and $19,053 in in-kind TV production work by the Dempsey Film Group and $2,500 in-kind from Aristotle for website work.
